2013 Goals Update - First Quarter

This year, I am doing quarterly goals updates because I found it too difficult to keep up with monthly updates last year. So far, in the first quarter of 2013, I am not doing very well on my goals at all... I think the main reason is because I don't refer back to my list often enough. I'm going to have to pick up the pace for the rest of the year.



1. Reduce contents of home by 25% (Decluttering)
I am not on track with this goal. I've given away 2 big bags of stuff to Goodwill, gotten rid of some of the clutter in the kitchen, and sold a couple of items I will no longer use but I am still a long way away from reducing the contents of my home by 25%. I am having trouble letting go of my things but I will continue working towards it.

2. Reduce beauty box subscriptions to 3 (Decluttering)
I cancelled Glossybox but subscribed to Ipsy so I am currently at 7 subscriptions (Glymm, Topbox, Julep, Starbox, Beauty Box 5, Seasonsbox, Ipsy). I plan to cancel Ipsy after the April bag and Topbox within the next few months. I will not be renewing Glymm once my subscription runs out.

3. Implement a beauty ban for 9 months (Decluttering)
January: I was doing well until my trip to the Big Island. I usually give myself a break from my goals when I travel but I bought so much during this trip that I can't possibly overlook it.
February: I was very good in February! I don't think I purchased any beauty products.
March: I was doing very well until March 31st... then I bought a bunch of lip products from Shoppers Drug Mart (mostly due to the L'Oreal sale).


4. Fit into my Browns knee-high black boots (Health & Fitness)
Nope. Not even close.

5. Eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetables per day (Health & Fitness)
I was doing well with this until I came back from my trip. Then I was getting back into a groove when my refrigerator broke. I am going to continue trying to meet this goal.

6. Plan 6 videos around a holiday or occasion (YouTube)
I've only done one so far - my 2013 goals video.

7. Film 2 reviews and/or tutorials per month (YouTube)
January:
NARS Exhibit A Blush Review
Review of the Nume 4 Play Set - Overview
Review of the Nume 4 Play Set - 32mm Barrel

February:
Review of the Nume 4 Play Set - 25mm Barrel
Review of the Nume 4 Play Set - 19mm Barrel
L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Rose On and On Review

March:
Review of the Nume 4 Play Set - 9mm to 18mm Barrel
Belmacz Glow in Cornelian Review
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick Review


8. Savings goal + rewards (Miscellaneous)
I was at 20.9% as of March 31, 2013 so just shy of 25% for the first quarter.

9. Take a photo a day and post to my Tumblr (Miscellaneous)
Success!

Overall, I definitely have to work on my decluttering and health & fitness goals. I'm doing well on my YouTube, savings, and photography goals.

Did you set goals for the 2013 year? If so, please let me know how you are doing!
